    My LAN was being hammered today by what my packet sniffer describes as
    DCE/RPC pings to non existent IP addresses. We have fully up to date pacthed
    Windows 2000 servers and PC's and have ran up to date Virus Scans, Adware
    Scans, Trojan Scans on the machines we identified as broadcasting ,but have
    found nothing incriminating to indicate what is causing this. After
    rebooting machines the invisible process that is causing the DCE RPC floods
    seems to disappear. All the usual (up to date) scanning tools find nothing,
    but the LAN is still flooded with trafiic making it unuseable. Any one have
    any idea what this might be?

    Thanks Mr V

    An unknown worm. Badly written application. Combination of both.
    Use Netowrk-based IDS like Snort (www.snort.org) - it will give you more
    How many PCs are the sources and what process generates traffic?
